Back from our 2 weeks RV trip. I was able to run 30 miles last week in altitude. I was hoping I would see some improvement from this but the 75 Degree weather, 75 Degree Dew Point and 100% Humidity made it tough to test myself.

8.16, 8.10, 7.59, 8.20, 8.15, 8.21,8.10, 8.03, Avg 8.13 @ 155 HR.

15 grueling miles.... I don't think I was really ready for this, with the heat and the tired legs from yesterday's run and 30 mile bike ride. Bonked on mile 13.5 and walked/ran the last 1.5 miles.
